    New SCAR Charging Handle

    There are several different SCAR charging handles around to replace the factory one. With my Mepro 21 reflex sight, I have sorta the same problem that people with an Eotech have... Its so easy to bang your hand on the optics mounting area while using the charging handle.

    I looked at all the various ones for a while, and I really figured I'd go with the IWC charging handle. However, I had a lot of free Amazon credit card points. Only the GG&G charging handle was for sale on Amazon. It was my second choice, and I figured I'd give it a shot, since it technically costs me no money to use the amazon points. And, if I didn't like it, I could always sell it and get the IWC one.

    Well, I got it in on yesterday and it installs very easily. After playing around with it for a while on the gun, I am very happy with it. It has the same overall shape of the factory handle - just at a downward angle.

    There are tons of reviews that promote one particular handle, and have negative things to say about the others. I've read both outlooks about the GG&G one. After using it now, I think I made the right choice. I haven't actually used the IWC one - but from looking at the photos of it some more, I think the GG&G was the way to go for me afterall.

    Anyway - a few photos:

    Nice improvement, for sure.

    Did the factory make a special effort to sharpen the front-bottom-left corner of that Mepro-21, or were you just lucky enough to get one that missed the de-burring step? That looks absolutely wicked, in relation to the charging handle path. I would have needed an EMT to shadow me if I was slapping that gun around at high speed. Hell, the exposed ends of the mounting base screws and nuts would have been enough to send me to the ER a couple of times a month...

    Hahaha, unfortunately, that's how all the Mepro 21s come. It would have been nice if they had put some sort of round en caps on top of the washer on those screws.

    Anyway, I have been careful with the stock charging handle, and only hurt myself once. I had been grabbing the outer edge of the factory one. Now, I needn't worry about it.

    I had the same issue when I had my Steyr AUG A3 (that I sold for my SCAR). The charging handle was too close to the optic. Anyone running an Eotech will have the same issue as well.
